My online ÖSD German resources
I’m currently preparing for my ÖSD B2 German exam, which is next weekend! Ack! I’m sure it will be okay, but it’s still a bit nerve-wracking!
I thought that I would share some of my online German resources on here. (It will also help me keep track of them to list them all in one place!) I hope those of you out there learning German will find some of these links useful. They are largely Austrian-based sources, but there are some sources from Germany as well. If you know of any other good online German resources, please leave a comment! 🙂
These are the three stations that I listen to the most, FM4 is my favourite but unfortunately there is a LOT of English, especially in the morning. I try to have one of these constantly running in the background.
For a great list of where you can listen to German radio (from Germany, Austria and Switzerland) online, click here.
Video-Thema – Short videos with transcripts and comprehension questions.
Langsam Gesprochene Nachrichten – Daily international news headlines in German, spoken slowly.
Top-Thema – Audio and text with comprehension questions and vocabulary list at the end.
There are a LOT of other great German resources on Deutsche Welle, it is a must visit for German learners, from just-starting-out to advanced.

So far I do all of my foreign language writing practice on Lang-8. If you aren’t familiar with Lang-8 I suggest you click that link now!
